The Winter classic returns this year, as two of the biggest stars in the NHL face off. Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin and Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby play at the annual Winter Classic on January 1st, 2011 in Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Heinz Field is the home of the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, and the NHL continued the yearly tradition of hosting a regular season game in another stadium not typically used for hockey. The last two years have featured the games played at Fenway Park, in 2010, and Wrigley Field, in 2009. This game is widely considered one of the most anticipated and interesting regular season games of the year. This year, the NHL added the Heritage Classic, a Canadian version of the Winter Classic. The Heritage Classic was first played in 2003, but was discontinued until now. The game, between the Montréal Canadiens and the host Calgary Flames, will be played on February 20th, 2011. It will be hosted at McMahon Stadium, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The venue is used by the Canadian Football League Calgary Stampeders.
